    Subash features drummer Steve Goldstein playing an electronic clay pot mixed with processed tape. The drum is a contemporary sculpture by New York sculptor Frank Giorgini, whose instruments are a part of the permanent collections in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Center for African Art. The drum is amplified by means of an internal contact mike and is further processed by signal processing. The piece is a hommage to South Indian master drummer Subash. With Steve Goldstein, clay tabla.
